Rush - Lock and Key - Hold Your Fire (1977)

[Intro]
G   A   Bb   C   G   A   

Eb
I don't want to face the killer instinct
Eb
Face it in you or me

[Instrumental]
A   B   C   D
A   B   C   D

[Verse 1]
A           B
We carry a sensitive cargo
C               D
Below the waterline
A             B
Ticking like a time bomb
        C              D
With a primitive design
A            B
Behind the finer feelings
C                  D
This civilized veneer
A                B
The heart of a lonely hunter
C             D
Guards a dangerous frontier

[Pre-Chorus 1]
E                Gb
The balance can sometimes fail
G                    G  A  B  G
Strong emotions can tip the scale

[Chorus]
A                     B
Don't want to silence a desperate voice
C                D
For the sake of security
A                      B
No one wants to make a terrible choice
C               D
On the price of being free
A                   B               C
I don't want to face the killer instinct
            D
Face it in you or me
A             B              F  
So we keep it under lock and key
F
Lock and key

[Verse 2]
A                    B
It's not a matter of mercy
C                    D
It's not a matter of laws
A                    B
Plenty of people will kill you
            C           D
For some fanatical cause
A                     B
It's not a matter of conscience
   C                    D
A search for probable cause
A                     B
It's just a matter of instinct
C                  D
A matter of fatal flaws

[Pre-Chorus 2]
E               Gb
No reward for resistance
G                      G  A  B  G
No assistance, no applause


[Chorus]
A                B                 C
I don't want to face the killer instinct
            D
Face it in you or me
A               B            F
So we keep it under lock and key
A                B                 C
I don't want to face the killer instinct
            D
Face it in you or me
A               B            F
So we keep it under lock and key
F
Lock and key

[Guitar Solo]
A    B    C    D

[Chorus]
A                     B
Don't want to silence a desperate voice
C                D
For the sake of security
A                      B
No one wants to make a terrible choice
C               D
On the price of being free
A                   B               C
I don't want to face the killer instinct
            D
Face it in you or me
A             B              F  
So we keep it under lock and key
A                   B               C
I don't want to face the killer instinct
            D
Face it in you or me
A             B              F  
So we keep it under lock and key
F
Lock and key

[Bridge]
A                    B
We don't want to be victims
C
On that we all agree
A                    B
So we lock up the killer instinct
C
And throw away the key

[Outro]
E   Gb   G   G   E   Gb   E   E
A   B   C   C   A   B   C   C
E   Gb   G   G   E   Gb   E   E
